Even as Vijay Sethupathi is fast turning into one of the most prominent actors in Tamil cinema, purely because of his acting skills and selection of scripts, his son has made his acting debut in Vijay's upcoming film Naanum Rowdydhaan.
According to a report from IndiaGlitz, when the makers of Naanum Rowdydhaan were looking to cast a 10 year old boy, as per the script's requirement, Vignesh Shivan, the director of the film has eventually zeroed in on Suriya, Vijay Sethupathi's son.
It is said that Suriya was eager to make his acting debut as he is very much into movies. After his show in the sets of Naanum Rowdydhaan, the entire team has reportedly praised his acting skills as everyone were happy with the young one's performance.
Though it is not yet clear what exactly is his characterization in the movie, sources close to the project have revealed that the young lad will be playing a small yet noticeable role in the film.
Apart from Nayantara, who is playing the female lead, the film has some fascinating performers like Raadhika Sarathkumar, Parthiban and Anandaraj.
The film which is directed by Vignesh Shivan has been bankrolled by Dhanush under his home production banner, Wunderbar Films. It is slated for a November release.
